Now July is here in Malta, the weather is really starting to heat up. I felt like last month wasn’t the hottest I’ve ever had in Malta but apparently it was the sunniest for many years, so I think that the weather in Malta this July 2015 is really going to step up a notch.
The July 2015 Heatwave in Malta
Malta is experiencing a prolonged heatwave this July, which is set to expand well into August as well. Temperatures are up to and even exceeding 35oC with the real feel hitting 40+. It’s pretty unbearable and it’s more important than ever that you all stay hydrated and make sure to keep on top of sunblock application. I know it’s annoying and sticky, but horrific burns, dehydration and hospitalisation are even more inconvenient!
Humidity is well into the 80% range, which means there is no air, everything is thick and sticky. If you need a bit of a breeze, Cafe del Mar sits at the perfect location with an almost year round gentle breeze, certain to make these hot and humid days more pleasant.
Weather in Malta July 2015: Day Time
The temperature in the days is sitting at around 28 – 32oC with the humidity not quite reaching 60%. It’s hot, that’s for sure, and walking around during the hottest hours is sweaty business but I’m sure it’s nowhere near as humid as some other years. In fact, there is still a really nice breeze and a little cloud cover so we’re still experiencing some moments of relief.
Night Time Time
The evening temperatures are up though, so there’s no more need for a jacket or light coverup in the evenings- other than to protect against mozzies! The evening temperatures are at a fairly steady mid 20s, but are bound to increase slightly as the month goes on. Before you know it, the nights wont be much cooler than the days.
The weather in Malta July 2015 is pretty consistent and reliable. We’re not likely to see any rain (although it’s not unheard of!) and if you’re here on holiday, you’re going to have amazing weather. Those of us who are working (boo!) can celebrate though as we can absolutely rely on the evenings and days off to be spectacular, perfect for sunbathing. The sea isn’t too warm yet either. It’s apparently around 25/26oC but it still feels chilly as you get in, which is a welcome relief from the heat outside.
But of course shallower bays, such as Mellieha, will feel much warmer. Evening swimming is still a way off for me though, even Mellieha was too chilly for me to brave it this week!
July in Malta
The weather in Malta July 2015 is one of my favourite months actually. It’s definitely, absolutely summer, but it’s not yet so unbearably hot that I can’t enjoy sunbathing. There will be a soft breeze to cool you a little a lot of the time and if it gets a bit much, the shade still offers a more comfortable temperature and the sea is refreshingly chilly, but not too cold to enjoy!
